Did you guys hear who won The Players Championship last week? Some Australian guy. Has a sweet mullet and mustache. Pretty good golfer. Shot the lowest combined four round score in PGA history earlier this year. Oh yeah, his name is Cameron Smith. The reason I know that is because I won 36 units betting on him to win. BANGGGGGGGGGGGGG. Let’s fucking go! Alright end of victory lap although it was fun.
The Player’s Championship was insane. I have never seen a tournament be suspended from play for nearly 48 hours due to rain. Then when play resumed, boom, 40 mph wind. I would never have made it on to the #17 island green. Some players barley made it on, with the first 4 players to hit tee shots on 17 after play resumed went into the water. Pure chaos and I loved it.
To add to the chaos, there was one of the best golfer arguments of all time between the tag team of Joel Dahmen and Victor Hovland vs Daniel Berger. I’ll add the video below so I don’t have to transcribe the whole thing, but I personally am on Dahmen and Hovlands side. It has absolutely nothing to do with me thinking Daniel Berger is a bump on a log and brings no excitement to me when he is atop the leaderboard. Also, credit to Hovland for dying on a hill. I would’ve given up on arguing and walked away motherfucking Berger under my breathe in under a minute.
Most importantly the world debut of Goldman. The fake cartoon golfer that none of us thought we wanted but now all need. The man of gold is electric. I need more. Bring the thing out for every big tournament. Forget the fact that its creepy and has awful graphics. It moves the needle. It gets the people going.
Now for this upcoming weekend of golf. Another star-studded field. A ton of big names but I prefer to zig when everyone zags. Taking the smaller names worked last week (+36.5 Units) so let’s run it back (turbo).
Here are my plays:
Gary Woodland Win +5500 1 Unit
Gary Woodland Top 20 +240 1 Unit
Kevin Kisner Top 20 +300 1 Unit
Harold Varner III Top 20 +310 1 Unit
Joel Dahmen Top 40 +175 1 Unit
